The Planned Parenthood abortion business is closing a center in New York State, one of the hundreds it operates across the country that either does abortions or makes abortion referrals.

A local newspaper report has the details:

Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson has announced it will close the Herkimer facility at 401 E. German St. on Wednesday, July 3.

PPMH officials said it will allow them to focus on the continued upgrade of health centers in the area and to ensure the highest level of patient care.

It will also help PPMH meet the growing and diverse needs of women and families in the area by providing more services, extended hours for appointments and walk-in hours at our other facilities, they said.

Patients can continue to receive services at the Utica site at 1424 Genesee St., where a recent $2.5 million project modernized and expanded the facility and parking lot, and improved privacy and security.

Patients’ electronic medical records already are available at all PPMH health centers to ease the transition.

Although this clinic did not do abortions it is part of the organization that does more abortions than anyone in the United States.

The most recent annual report released by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) shows the abortion giant did a record 333,964 abortions on unborn children during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. Those abortions were estimated to have generated $150 million dollars for the “nonprofit” organization.

While the number of abortions reached a record high, only 2,300 Planned Parenthood customers were referred to adoption agencies during the 2011-2012 fiscal year.



Meanwhile, the annual report reveals PPFA generated nearly $1.2 billion in total income — just short of the $1.22 billion mark that was its record for income that it posted in 2010-2011.

PPFA’s income included a hefty and ever-increasing check from American taxpayers. In 2009-2010, government funding reached a whopping $487.4 million. In 2010-2011 the figure jumped to $538.5 million. The total for 2011-2012 reached a staggering $542.4 million, which represents 45.2 percent of the group’s total annual budget.

In its last annual report, Planned Parenthood did 329,445 abortions in 2010 while it provided prenatal care to only 31,098 women and referred only 841 women to adoption agencies.
